We always listen to the suggestions of our guests, which we try to implement as much as possible,” says Nansija Grīnberga-Ivāne, the manager of LSF Recreation and Tourism Centre “Spāre”.

Sarmīte’s review: “A nice, quiet place to rest, relax and spend time. Fully equipped bungalows. Recommend! Nice, quiet, sunny place. View of the lake. Warm cottage, good pillows, and blankets. Fully equipped kitchen, including disposable dishes for outdoor use. Fireplace and table by it. Everything is clean and fragrant. I didn’t like shutters, blinds would be better.”

Signe’s comment: “Charming place on the shore of the lake, cottages new and clean. Perfect place on the shore of an adorable lake, you can have breakfast on the terrace of the cottage overlooking the lake. Everything is new and perfectly clean. Exiting themed board games about forest and nature to at morning coffee. You can go boating, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming in the lake, it is worth spending several nights there. Windows should have curtains and mosquito nets.”
